Subject: A moving picture indeed.
Wish I'd thought of that end tag line. Anyways, this very briefly talks about the subject of moving, but this is mostly a travelogue about the many beautiful things about Alaska. Narrated by the neighbors apparently, the film sees the couple and their kid off on a cab, then instantly talks about the many cities and touristy things one can do there. I am not sure what the whole point of this film was.
